My perfect gaming moment to date came during an a period of nothingness, unlike many of the most enjoyable moments in games. It was a simple moment. A moment in which the character and I became, in many important ways, as one.
This moment wasn't brought about by an emotional cut-scene. It wasn't the result of the heart-pounding emergence of a zombie dog through a hallway window. It wasn't an epic sniper battle in a forest, nor was it a perfectly executed hop-skip-and-jump over a lovingly re-created Florence skyline.
